|copyright Durhamonthecheap - Fage yogurt and rhubarb/strawberry mix for dessert!|
But today, I added some cooked rhubarb cooked with strawberries to my yogurt. I do not see a lot of rhubarb in gardens and growing up in Germany, I vividly remember one afternoon when as part of the kids choir I was in we were singing to the senior citizens that were members of my Lutheran church. After we were done singing, we were rewarded with - you guessed it - rhubarb pie. Now this was pie made the German way, which means the rhubarb was added raw to a plain sweetened yeast dough and then baked in the oven. Now don't get me wrong, many adults loved rhubarb pie made that way, but it was atrociously sour and not a taste that kids liked. I was not that much into pies to begin with and rhubarb was not on the top of my list of fruits, so even our teacher commented that this was an odd choice of reward to give to kids. Anyway, no one ate a slice and we just drank our milk and left. Thinking about our quality of singing, milk was probably all we deserved anyway - we were never that good and mostly joined the choir because it meant free music lessons.

Fage also has some interesting recipes using their yogurt on their website. One that struck me as being something that I would want to try was a cheesecake with Fage yogurt. The link to the recipe is here and the final result is below. Does that cake not look too delicious to even eat? Well not really, it does look very good and I still have some yogurt in the fridge, so this recipe may be something I will try for my next party.
